    Where did you get this advice from? Sometimes its nice to take a look at a persons personal tank to gauge the advice he/she is giving ..... Besides .... if this is true then how often should you dose this ...... once per day like humans? I think this would work out pretty expensive ......

    It is not proven that Cal-C-Vita works.. I think one needs to really sit down and do some decent research before dosing anything into your system.

    I have personally heard too many bad things about ca-c-vita. I would rather get a product like BrightWell's Vitamin C and use this instead. This has been tested and I know this works.

    We have personally used brightwell's vitamin C with sick fish and it really does wonders.

    I am just very sceptical of using somme anything to dose in your system. I prefer using well established products due to the fact they have a lab with many reef tanks and test all their products before it is released.

    Rather safe than sorry...;)
